Nandrolone Decanoate is a very anabolic, moderate androgenic form of nortestosterone that was the most commonly used drug to create a rapid build-up of lean muscle mass or as a diet "protein- sparing" drug by athletes of all kinds. This is a longer lasting nandrolone than Durabolin so some water retention resulted with long term administration (especially in higher dosages). A prominent positive nitrogen balance occurs with the use of nandrolones and therefore a high protein intake was a must for all reported users. If you read the section on protein, you know that nitrogen in its bonded form is a part of protein/amino acids. Since nandrolone promotes nitrogen storage in muscle cells (a positive nitrogen balance) then the cell contains more protein for growth and repair than normal. Remember: This could only happen if above normal calories (with a focus on protein) were ingested. Since nandrolone is moderately androgenic, good strength gains also resulted. Another plus for nandrolone was that most users experienced a joint healing effect during cycles and a suppressed cortisol/cortisone activity due to nandrolones ability to long-term block cortisol receptors. Since aromatization was low, in 200-400-mg weekly dosages, anti-estrogens were not commonly necessary to avoid gyno and estrogenic induced side effects. Based upon available research and information available it seems liver toxicity is unknown with nandrolone. So it was not a surprise to find that even those with liver disease have used this drug with great success.
Common dosages for men were 200 600mg weekly. Though dosages over 400 mg weekly caused more water retention. For first time use of dosages over 400 mg weekly, I preferred to add 50-100mg Durabolin to each of the 2 weekly injections. This was because Durabolin is much faster acting and therefore creates chance for water retention and gyno. (This applied to first -time users only)
An added benefit of this method was that nandrolone decanoate begins significant activity at 6 days and peaks at about 8 days after administration. The faster acting durabolin "kicks in" after about 1 day. This also resulted in higher "quality" muscle tissue gain.
Women seemed to do very well with nandrolones due to the lower androgenic/masculining effect. Women consistently reported excellent lean mass and strength gains at dosages of 50-100 mg weekly. Masculine effects usually were avoided by single weekly injections of 25-50 mg nandrolone decanoate and 25-50 mg of Durabolin (nandrolone phenylpropionate). In both men and women, this method seemed to result in more "quality" muscle, less water retention, less gyno for males, and good retention of gains after the cycle ends.
*Metabolites can be found in urine or blood tests for 12-18 months after use of nandrolone is discontinued.

Nandrolone binds to the androgen receptor to a greater degree than testosterone, but due to its inability to act on the muscle in ways unmediated by the receptor, has less overall effect on muscle growth. The drug is also unusual in that unlike most anabolic steroids, it is not broken down into the more reactive DHT by the enzyme 5a-reductase, but rather into a less effective product. As such, some of the negative effects associated with most such drugs are somewhat mitigated.
The positive effects of the drug include muscle growth, appetite stimulation and increased red blood cell production and bone density. Clinical studies have shown it to be effective in treating anaemia, osteoporosis and some forms of neoplasia including breast cancer, and also acts as a progestin-based contraceptive. Nandrolone is also extensively used by bodybuilders and other athletes seeking an edge in professional competition
